A NFL champion, a "Real Housewives" star and a former "American Idol" contestant are among the Season 16 cast of "Dancing With The Stars."

The 12 celebrities competing for the Mirrorball Trophy were announced Tuesday morning on "Good Morning America," and as always, there were some surprising names.

There are four athletes: Jacoby Jones, Aly Raisman, Victor Ortiz and Dorothy Hamill. Athletes have fared well on the show in the past, winning 7 of the previous 15 titles.

The country music world is well-represented, with both Kellie Pickler and Wynonna Judd.

Though TMZ called it, the most surprising addition is still Andy Dick, a comedian known for erratic behavior and stint in "Celebrity Rehab."

"Dancing With The Stars" premieres on March 18, 2013 on ABC.
